Venezuela opposition weighs election run after talks end


Venezuelan opposition parties are debating whether to take part in presidential polls set for 22 April, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

Venezuela's electoral authorities announced the date on Wednesday just hours after talks between the government and the opposition broke up without agreement.

 

The elections were originally scheduled for December.

 

The opposition is split on whether to put up candidates as they say the whole process is flawed.

 

The government and the opposition have been at loggerheads about the elections for weeks after the National Constituent Assembly, a superbody which can overrule all other branches of government, announced they would be brought forward from December to "sometime before May".
